Was he? It looks to me like the woman who posted got fired and so did a man who took her side, but that the man who disagreed with her didn't.

But I don't get how this is mansplaining, or sexist....

Kerouac's parents were from Quebec so he grew up speaking French. I think Ishiguro was born in Japan, and wasn't Martell born in France? or Spain?
